thank TOC i will e-mail you. I found out i didnt know that SD40-2 is over $610 Value with SD40-2, 18 volt battery, and RCS basic-6 ready to go. when i pay for 40 buck that used locomotive. I test the both motor block run just fine!

There's quite a few things I need to get and/or fix. I added up the cost from USA trains and even if I put another $150 into it, it will still be cheaper than buying a new one. It also will be the way I want it! Hehehe.

Ill send you an email with what I need; let me know what you may have and the cost.

Thanks.
Bryan

You'll like the RCS, and self contained unit. You can bring it and visit. Go pick up JJs derailed cars.

Go pick up JJs derailed cars.

That will take a very, very, long, long, long time. They're scattered all over the layout. Probably will need a crane as well....


Great buy, Bryan.... They do come along once in a while....
